"I wanted to write to say how wonderful all the aides have been."

Dear Mike Recco at Friends For Life,
I wanted to write to say how wonderful all the aides have been. Pamella and Georgina have taken such good care of me during the last two months. I’ve been slowly getting better thanks to them.

Hi Amy,
Just want to personally thank you for all you do for the McKenna Senior citizens. Your caring and treating us is greatly appreciated by all of us. When we see you come in we never know what goodies you [will] bring us. The best one was the Valentine’s Day with the teddy bear love, it sits on my walker and goes wherever I go. My son said what’s this with the teddy bear on your walker? I said he’s my new friend. He lives with me and I told him when I am in need as I get older, call Amy. Thank you so much for taking time out to visit us.
Sincerely,
— Vivian LaSerra
PS. I came to your seminar [and] won the gift certificate for Bacara. Excellent food.

"I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through this without Antionette’s help."

About one year ago, I had the good fortune of being referred by a friend to Friends for Life Homecare in order to find a caregiver and companion to take care of my aging father. I called and spoke to Amy. She did a quick but thorough intake with me over the phone and then within a very short time, called me back to recommend the placement of the one of their staff, a wonderful woman named Antoinette. While it wasn’t easy getting my father to adjust to having a “stranger” in his home, he took to Antoinette very quickly and suddenly dropped all of his resistance, and just enjoyed having someone there to talk to and attend to him. For almost a year, Antionette came to see my father every week day, made him breakfast and lunch, went shopping for him, did light cleaning around the house, and helped him with home projects and tasks. Over time, my fathers condition deteriorated and unfortunately, he eventually succumbed to his illness. Thankfully, during this most difficult time in my life, I had Antionette to rely upon and be there with me and my father, and to make him as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. She was very quick to adapt to my fathers changing needs and readily volunteered to help watch my father in shifts. At this point, I honestly don’t know how I would have gotten through this without Antionette’s help. Mike and Amanda were also great to work with and were always very responsive to my questions and needs along the way. Based upon my experience with them, I have no hesitation in recommending Antionette and Friends for Life Homecare.

"The individuals I met from Friends for Life Homecare are true professionals and I would strongly recommend their agency to anyone in need of private care. "

My mother has been using a caregiver from Friends for Life Homecare for more than six months as a live-in and her condition has dramatically improved from before. After researching several agencies, I was decided on Friends for life Homecare, as their agency allowed me to interview multiple aides. They also provided recommendation on local activities for my mom. The individuals I met from Friends for Life Homecare are true professionals and I would strongly recommend their agency to anyone in need of private care.

"Pauline entered our home under dire circumstances and gifted us with a sense of stability, security and peace of mind. "

Dear Michael and Amy,
It is with regret and sadness that I write this letter. We will be ending our service with Friends for Life as of Monday, January 28th, as we are moving to Medicaid. During a period of some four months we were privileged to have the services of one Pauline. Pauline entered our home under dire circumstances and gifted us with a sense of stability, security and peace of mind. Not only did she care for my mom who suffers from dementia, but she help the rest of the family cope with the many ups and downs of this devastating illness, educating us along the way.

Pauline is a true professional but most of all, she is a kind, caring and compassionate soul. She maintained our household and tended to my mom with ease and a sense of purpose. She will so be missed. I thank you for your service to our family in our time of need. I have recommended Friends for Life to numerous friends who are in need of home care. It is nice to know we always have a place to turn to in our time of need. Thank you for all your help.
Sincerely,
—Marie F.

"You're always doing something special for people."

Hope to see you soon.
Love,
—Mary

I had Michael and Amy take care of my dad when he had surgery. He wasn’t really able to walk around the house or do any simple tasks for himself. The caregiver we had was so great, not only were they helpful with absolutely anything and everything we needed, but they kept my dad good company when my mom and I had to go to work during the day. I truly believe that our caregiver was a big reason why my dad had such a quick and smooth recovery. I can’t thank them enough for the constant attention and concern for my dad, always making sure we were satisfied with our care. Thankfully, we are no longer in need of their services, but I would use them again and again if I could!

Wonderful company! Thank you again to the caregivers who stayed with my family until we were approved for Medicaid. They were wonderful, professional and caring. I have already recommended Friends for Life Homecare and Friends for Life Medicaid Consultants to another friend that has a similar situation and I will continue to do so.

I wanted to express our thanks and deep appreciation to Amy and the entire Homecare team for taking care of my mom. My goal was to have her in her house rather than a facility and be as comfortable as possible, and Friends for life made it happen. Friends for Life Homecare touched our lives and I don’t know what I would have done without all of you. I can highly recommend Amy and Michael not only as a client but as a friend.

Amy Recco and Friends for Life Homecare are a great resource! My mom insisted on living in her home and would not consider moving. We were stuck in a difficult situation having to provide daily care and support for my mom. Amy and her team have brought such wonderful caregivers and ensured constant coverage. The Friends for Life team has been extremely sensitive to my mom’s needs. They have come up with a solution that not only fits our needs, it also is within our financial limits! We now rely on Friends for Life every day.

I heard about Friends for Life through a friend of mine and saw that they had a Senior Appreciation event back in September. I attended the event with my mom and learned a ton of information and it really gave my family a lot of clarity and direction. We ended up using their caregivers and I was honestly very pleased with their service. The caregivers were genuine and compassionate towards my loved one and thats tough to find. I found a connection with friends for life employees and caregivers that truly brought relief and peace of mind. Wonderful place, wonderful people.

I wanted to express our thanks and deep appreciation to you and the entire Friends For Life team for taking care of our family. Our goal was to have our family stay in their house rather than a facility. I discovered Friends for Life via their website. From our first conversation you were incredibly responsive and helpful. Thank you for everything!

Giving a Huge shout Out to Friends For Life Homecare. I called in a total panic mode for my mom. My mom needed extra help while she was at Plainview Hospital, we all work and we all try to stay with her but we needed help. Friends For Life Homecare was recommended to my brother (thank goodness).. they actually came to the hospital to meet us and by the end of the day we had a wonderful Aide Denise with my mom and she was the best. Glad to say my mom is home and Denise is still with her everyday taking wonderful care of her. Yesterday, we met with Friends for Life Medicaid expert Michelle at their office with the owner Amy. Not only are they going to now help us get our mom on Medicaid they are also assisting us with so many programs she is entitled to. I can’t say enough how happy we are to know my mom is going to be ok. Thank you a million times! I highly recommend this caring and loving company for your parents or those who just need support.
